Why I'm Loving My Ipsy Glam Bag

There are a lot of monthly subscription boxes out there. Some are relatively cheap, while others are a bit overpriced. I'd always wanted to subscribe to one, but didn't want to end up with products I'd never use. This changed when I heard about Ipsy. For $10, Ipsy sends you a monthly glam bag filled with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products.

In May, I received the cute bag below. It contained nail polish, concealer, brow gel, lipstick, and a roll-on perfume. I haven't used all of the products yet. I love the Zoya nail polish. It isn't too thin or too thick. The lipstick isn't my color, but it's neither heavy or sticky. I still need to try the concealer and brow gel. I gave the perfume to Rory.

This month, I was much happier with the products inside. I got blush, which I needed, a lip pencil, gel eyeliner, a highlighter pencil, and a sparkling cream palette. I thought the sparkling cream palette was eye shadow. I was going to give it to Rory because this chick isn't wearing glitter shadow at 34. It's actually glitter for your body. So, yeah, neither of us will be wearing it. I'm most excited about the gel eyeliner that comes with a built-in brush. I've never tried a gel liner before. This should be fun. I've already used the blush. It's not my normal color, but I still love it.

I love that I can get multiple full-size beauty products for less than $10 a month. I also love that I get exclusive offers directly through Ipsy. Each month, I can go to their site and buy the products I received at a discounted price. This month's items are all discounted 20-35% off. This subscription is actually going to save me money.

Last but not least, Ipsy has a great interactive website. You can see full details about the products you've received, get feedback from others and participate in challenges to win prizes. If you love a product, you can review it and ask for similar items. If you hate a product, you can let them know that too.

Ipsy isn't giving me anything for this post. I just wanted to share one of my new favorite things with all of you. If you'd like to sign up, you can take the initial beauty quiz here and get your very own Glam Bag each month!

I am definitely going to consider this after getting more debt paid down. I love the idea of trying new things for less than purchasing ONE product at the stores you may or may not use.

Ha! I signed up for this last week. I'll get my first one in July. I still love my birchbox too. Double the goodies a month. Yes!

I need to subscribe to one of these fun boxes. Seems like such a cool thing to get every month. This one sounds cool!

Hahah! I thought it was glitter eye shadow too and thought it was kind of tacky. I love everything else you got though. I also really love the bag from May. So glad I signed up!

I've been thinking about signing up for a subscription box, but can't decide which to go with. This one sounds like fun, though.
